Reasons to choose ClearCorrect® aligners over traditional braces

Teeth aligners are becoming more modern within the field of dentistry. Clear removable aligners are one of the many modern inventions that has been created. Here are some reasons why they are a superior choice to traditional metal braces.

Discreet treatment

One of the greatest reasons to choose ClearCorrect aligners over traditional braces is because they offer a discreet method of treatment. ClearCorrect aligners are completely transparent which means that it is next to impossible to see them. A lot of people find that ClearCorrect aligners are a better option since they can be discreet.

Because traditional braces are all metal, they are far from discreet which can bother people who are embarrassed by their orthodontic treatment. However, with a ClearCorrect aligner, orthodontic treatment can be achieved without anyone having to even know. The aligner fits perfectly right over the teeth as they are custom-made for each person. This means that there is no bulkiness which could also bring attention to the mouth if present.

A minimal need

Not everyone that needs orthodontic treatment has an extreme need for aligners or braces. Some people only have a couple of crooked teeth that are in need of straightening and in these situations, ClearCorrect can be a great option to choose instead of going through the entire traditional braces process.

ClearCorrect aligners can correct the minimal amounts of crookedness without having to force a patient to wear metal brackets and wires. 

Simpler method

ClearCorrect aligners are removable and one piece. Thus, it can be a simpler method of treatment as opposed to the metal wires and brackets that come along with traditional braces.

Most people find that heavy duty wires and brackets can completely take over the mouth. Whereas ClearCorrect aligners are removable and the patient is in complete control. Since traditional brackets do have wires and brackets, there are multiple pieces. This is opposed to a ClearCorrect aligner which is one piece for either the top half or the bottom half of teeth.
